Classic Arts News   Tenor Marcello Gordani Marks 20th Anniversary of Debut
Tenor Marcello Gordani will mark the 20th anniversary of his operatic debut this week, performing in a special concert at the Teatro Massimo Bellini in his native Sicily on March 11.

Giordani made his debut in Spoleto, Italy in 1986, singing the Duke in a production of Rigoletto.

The March 11 concert will include a series of arias illustrating highlights of Giordani's career. The tenor will announce the creation of a scholarship named for his father, Michele Guagliardo, to be presented as part of an opera competition in Alcamo, Sicily.

Giordani's upcoming appearances include Cavaradossi in Tosca at the Metropolitan Opera in April; he returns to the company for the gala concert in honor of outgoing general manager Joseph Volpe in May and to sing Pinkerton in a season-opening production of Madama Butterfly, directed by Anthony Minghella, in September.
